DIRECTOR: Ask Hasselbalch - DENMARK

A delightful adventure spoof based on the popular Danish children’s books by Kenneth Bøgh Andersen, Antboy has enough action, comedy, and charm to entertain superhero fans of all ages. Pelle, a shy 12-year-old, develops unimaginable superpowers after being bitten by a genetically modified ant. With help from his friend, comic book nerd Wilhelm, Pelle creates a secret superhero identity as Antboy and becomes a local crime fighter. When a supervillain named The Flea enters the scene with a plan to kidnap his schoolmate crush Amanda, Antboy must step up to the challenge. “An exciting, fun twist on a popular genre with plenty of heart that explores the notion that the power of friends is stronger than any super power.”—London Film Festival. (77 mins.)
